Idaho EdNews seeks journalist

Idaho EdNews is hiring a journalist to cover breaking news, state government and education policy creation in Idaho.

This full-time position includes reporting on the people who influence state government and public education, including elected officials, lobbyists, and state agency leadership.

Our downtown Boise office is walking distance from the state Capitol, State Department of Education and State Board of Education.

We offer an attractive compensation package, including a competitive salary, healthcare and retirement benefits, and generous PTO.

Most importantly, this is a workplace where a journalist has the time and support to do award-winning work. We are building a new kind of journalism – entrepreneurial and public-service oriented – and a new kind of civic reporting. We also are building a new kind of work environment for a journalist – one that is flexible and focused on strengths and interests. Our support team includes a full-time data analyst, who collects and mines data for journalists, and a managing editor with more than 30 years of experience.
